Montreal Spice Blend
Mayonnaise(ContainsEgg/Oeuf, Mustard/Moutarde, Sulphites/Sulfite)
Salt and Pepper*
Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Garlic Guide: 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp extra! Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch thick wedges. Toss sweet potatoes with 2 tbsp oil on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in middle of oven, flipping halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 22-24 min.
While sweet potatoes cook, thinly slice tomatoes. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch slices. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat beef dry with paper towels. Toss beef with Montreal Steak Spice and half the garlic in a large bowl.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then onions. Cook stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Add 1 tbsp oil, then half the beef to the same pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4-6 min.** Transfer to the plate with onions and repeat with 1 tbsp oil and remaining beef.
While beef cooks, mix together mayo with 1/4 tsp garlic (NOTE: Reference Garlic Guide in Start Strong) in a medium bowl. Season with pepper. Set aside. Carefully slice into centre of each roll - parallel to cutting board - leaving 1-inch intact on the other end. Brush cut-side of the rolls with 2 tsp oil. Arrange cut-side up on another baking sheet.
Toast rolls in top of oven, until lightly golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on them so that they don't burn!) Spread half the garlic aioli on the rolls. Top with beef, onions, tomato slices, then spring mix.
Divide the Montreal spiced beef strip hoagie and sweet potato wedges between plates. Serve remaining garlic aioli on the side, for dipping.
